On the site What Should I Do If The Internet Goes Down? they give the ten commandments of downtime of the lifeline-connection to the virtual reality:

1. Panic!

2. Find A Telephone

3. Use Your Back-Up Computer

4. Install A Game

5. Perform Routine Maintenance (this is my way truly...)

6. Turn On A Television Or Radio

7. Read

8. Go Outside

The idea of leaving your workstation may seem a little extreme

9. Spend Time With Your Spouse

Communicating with your wife or girlfriend may seem like a radical suggestion, but the time investment may offer long-term rewards. WARNING: These will probably be the longest hours of your life.

10. Use Your Emergency AOL Disk and kill yourself with it...
